Restaurant Review

Saffron Tiger

Slow food, fast

If you read the online reviews of Saffron Tiger, on Paseo del Norte, you’d think going there is like rolling dice. It’s interesting how many people label the restaurant as an Indian version of Panda Express, and how this contingent is split over whether this is a good thing.

There’s Always Feces in Something

No really. Once or twice a year, a super gross food story comes out.

Well, 2010 brings us feces-related bacteria in soda fountains at fast food restaurants. Microbiologists found that 48 percent of sodas from fast food soda-dispensing machines contained coliform bacteria, ”which is typically fecal in origin”.

Read the article. There’s a whole bunch of other bacteria in soda fountains, like E. Coli. No one has yet postulated why soda fountains are so gross, or if making a “suicide” at the 7-11 down the street from my middle school will really turn you insane.
